Dedicated to an enshrined 16th-century samurai, Takeda Shrine offers blessings to samurai warriors who gather here for the annual samurai parade. With some 1,000 cherry blossom trees, the shrine features a large "kagure," a Shinto theatrical dance outlet featuring occasional performances, and a carp pond where you can feed the fish. You can also spot black-crowned night herons in the garden. A small museum inside the shrine features Takeda Shingen’s weapons, armor, colorful battle standards, and other personal belongings. You can also see Kamakura-period sword, listed as a national treasure, on display at the shrine, which sits eight minutes from Kofu station by bus or taxi.

  • Electric bicycles went from Kofu station. And climbed the Hill to Takeda shrine is the way one feels, quite away. Instead go down easy is a meal.

  • From Kofu station by bus 8-minute taxi 1,000 yen much. If the bus is 30 minutes but every time not early taxi. Souvenir shops are before the House. Cherry Blossom night at the shrine entrance of Dazai Osamu. Want to come in the spring.

  • As the name of the warring States period the famed Takeda Shingen and Takeda shrine history is relatively new, built on the site of 躑躅ヶ崎 hotel was the Takeda family planning in the Taisho era. Location up North straight from Kofu station access, becomes a bus service from the train station. When it was in the large precinct other than the shrine were building. Whats nokyo-sho Takeda Shingen standing like not writing directly to the temple at will to make things. By the way ordinary nokyo-Sho is 300 yen, was 500 yen Shingen appearance with.

  • lots of cherry trees along day from Kofu station. its a good 30 min walk up the hill but its really nice in spring. there is a nice view from the gate downhill (a cherry tree avenue) and across the city.
  • Beautiful shrine and surrounding area. Nice to walk around and take lots of photos!
  • Well kept, ample spaces to walk around, beautiful cherry trees.
  • Furnishings of castles was just 躑躅ヶ崎 of the shrine is. Where can I impress is making moat there is a shrine on a large stone wall is also splendid, but certainly feel of the Takeda family history enthusiasts are going; Because it doesn't get too crowded on weekdays, parking becomes shinkyo bridge right. Note that may also include parking spaces for passenger cars went a little bit left is crowded, but not open on weekdays.
